ELKO Group Interim Report January–June, 2017

Product portfolio expansion contributes to ELKO’s growth in flat market conditions
  • Revenue 635 million USD (586 million EUR), up by 17% year-on-year
  • Gross profitability 5.1%, up by 0.4 percent points year-on-year
  • Gross profit 32.4 million USD (29.9 million EUR), up by 27% year-on-year
  • Net profit 5.2 million USD (4.8 million EUR), up by 21% year-on-year
The ELKO Group's revenue for the 6 months of 2017 increased significantly reaching 635 million USD (586 million EUR), compared with 542 million USD (485 million EUR) for the relevant period in 2016. During the last half-year, the product portfolio has significantly expanded, and new distribution areas have already been added to already existing distribution agreements. Thus, ELKO managed to grow faster than the market as a whole, with a turnover growth of 17% compared to the six months of the previous year.
CEE – up by 7.3%, reaching 274 million USD (253 million EUR)
CIS – up by 31.8%, reaching 313 million USD (289 million EUR)
Baltics – down by 2.1%, reaching 48 million USD (44 million EUR)
During the first half of 2017, ELKO went through a rebranding process by developing new positioning and visual identity of its brand. The new logo and the story behind it are the first visible evidence of how ELKO is integrated into the transformation of the industry, improving efficiency and ensuring sustainable development.
After the end of the reporting period, at the beginning of July 2017 the deal for acquisition of 85% shareholding in Swedish company Gandalf Distribution AB - one of the leading distributors of computer and peripheral products in Sweden, has been completed. Gandalf Distribution AB will be consolidated into ELKO Group starting from the 3rd quarter of 2017. ELKO has also taken first tentative steps in the Polish market by outsourcing a local sales team.
